“Construction in Progress” Sign on Grenada’s Lagoon Park: What next?
Citizens in Defence of Grenada’s Lands & Heritage would like to draw to the attention of the general public and all interested persons the recent erection of the following sign on the Lagoon Park area – Hazardous Area – Construction in Progress. The implicit message in that sign is “KEEP OUT“. But what construction can be be possibly taking place or is planned to take place in that area?
In 2009, when protest action was taken against the backfilling and occupation of the park area by Camper and Nicholson, Tillman Thomas gave a committment that there would be no building on the Lagoon Park. Has some person/authority given Camper and Nicholson permission to conduct construction activities on the Lagoon Park area? Buildings? Berths? Will the people of Grenada see a FENCE being erected shortly?
Citizens in Defence of Grenada’s Lands and Heritage understands that in 2009, Camper & Nicholson was granted permission to TEMPORARILY backfill and occupy that area in order to facilitate the construction of berths. Permission was for a three year period.
According to their reports, construction has been completed and the marina is fully operational. Citizens in Defence of Grenada’s Lands and Heritage is aware that end of the three (3) year period is fast approaching. Is this sign an OMEN of things to come?
